Job seekers take note, 94 percent of recruiters in a Social Recruiting Survey plan to use social media to hire candidates, according to KeepieCareers.com.
“Research shows employers benefit from using social media to attract candidates. According to Jobvite’s 2013 Social Recruting Survey, 94 percent of recruiters use or plan to use social media to hire, and 49 percent of them assert that they’ve found better-quality candidates via social recruiting. Jobvite is a consulting firm that studies how employers source and hire candidates. While it may seem obvious to job seekers to turn to LinkedIn, the go-to professional network, for job search activities and to apply for positions, some companies are accessing channels like Twitter to recruit.
Recently, the global IT provider HCL Technologies completed a three-week Twitter recruitment campaign called #COOLESTINTERVIEWEVER, during which HCL human resources executives conducted a series of interviews exclusively over Twitter.”
